Los Vascos Le Dix 2009
Wine SpectatorRacy, featuring a dark profile of blackberry, cassis and kirsch notes backed by fine tannins, as the finish pumps out layers of licorice, smoke and spice. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Carmenère. Drink now. 1,400 cases imported. W
Wine EnthusiastHarmonious aromas of cassis, vanilla and mocha are inviting. The palate, however, seems narrow and high in acidity; it's grinding and choppy, with herbal, tangy flavors of berry and cassis mixed with tobacco and herbs. Finishes rough and scratchy, with a lasting olive flavor. A very good wine but not the best Le Dix by any means.
